For sound and construction quality definitely stick with Wetsounds or JL Audio. Both have a great and supporting dealer network. I have seen where most of the better dealers have withdrawn form Exile.

There is no 9". Both '9' models (HLCD and surf model) of Exile tower speakers are 8". Just like when they called their 6.5" an XM7. A little marketing slight of hand there.

Dang. Two 400/4s bridged into four channels is very good power for four 880s. Someone did it right. In reality, those amps should get 200 watts to each speaker even at a 12.5 volt supply. Also,...
